THE FALLS:

Northern New Hampshire has an extensive network of logging roads and untamed lands. Located in these lands are a few high-rated waterfalls. Several are located on Dartmouth College-owned property, and are off-limits to non-students, faculty or alumni. Luckily for the rest of us, gems such as Garfield Falls are very welcoming.
         This waterfall is the premier waterfall of this region. At 40 feet, the falls drop into a wild and scenic gorge?one of New Hampshire's best and a photographers playground. Smaller cascades and rapids continue downstream. Allocate a few hours for this waterfall as you will not want to leave.

Waterfalls, swimming holes, and hiking can be extremely dangerous. Hundreds of people have been injured or killed in the waterfalls and swimming holes of New England over the last 50 years. Never swim when the water currents seem like they are too high or strong. Use of this website and all of its information is at your own risk! Be safe out there - and always use common sense!
